I know I shouldn't be laughing hysterically since those are probably Albanian sex slave smugglers who have Liam Neeson's daughter swinging off a ledge but the anticipation always gets me. You know something bad is going to happen so it doesn't shock you or make you cringe. You just kind of laugh it off and say "thank god it ain't me" while you send the video to other co-workers and friends. Awesome.

In the new spread offense this guy is going to be putting up Riddickulous numbers while working in the slot. The Riddickulous Slot Machine should be fun to watch all season whether by ground or air. Catch your shirt today at SportsCrack.com.

First of all, sorry for the absence. My wife and I welcomed our first born into the world on August 18 and I've been home taking care of her and him. Nolan was born at 11:24 PM on 8/18/10 and is home, happy, and healthy with his mother! Thanks to all of you guys who wished us well and have been around. Nolan says you guys rock! He also helped me make these picks. Just before he fell asleep, I heard my week and a half year old son yell GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DAWGS! That's my boy!
Without further delay...

LSU destroys UNC’s hopes and dreams – Yes, before AgentGate, UNC looked good. Coach Butch Davis did a hell of a job building his team and his team did a hell of a job tearing themselves apart just before the season kicked off. LSU’s defense looks scary good themselves and the offense isn’t far behind. If Jordan Jefferson steps up, look for LSU to beat UNC by 21. If the entire UNC team is cleared to play, this may be a much tougher match up. UNC deserves better, but like Kentucky and thanks to dumb college kids and evil agents, may be praying basketball season hurries up.
Prediction: LSU 21 UNC 10

UGA lives up to it’s “sleeper” status – Come on’ if the Dawgs don’t win by 21, Richt may actually be on the hot seat. Look for Branden Smith and Brandon Boykin to score special teams touchdowns, Justin Houston, Daryl Gamble, and Demarcus Dobbs to live in the backfield of the Ragin Cajuns and Todd Grantham’s defense to balloon statistics all day. There are some big debuts all over the defense including Jakar “Hitman” Hamilton, Bacarri Rambo finally starting, Alec Ogletree’s first collegiate interception, and the 3 - 4 defensive scheme to confuse both the opponent’s offense and at times UGA’s own defense. On offense, the nation’s top O-Line, top tight end group, and top receiver open up a running game like UGA hasn’t seen since the GA Tech game last season for Caleb King, Carlton Thomas, and Ken Malcome. Logan Gray catches a couple passess, Orson Charles breaks a few ankles, A.J. Green makes several spectacular plays and all is well in the BullDawg Nation until we beat South Carolina next weekend. Look for Marlon Brown, Rantavius Wooten, Aaron White, and Kris Durham to have welcoming parties. Yeah, it’s going to happen!
Prediction: UGA 42 – LA Lafayette 6

Vandy grows some balls and gets them kicked in – Go figure, the SEC East team to take on an actual football team that resembles a college athletic program is the one SEC team who looks like the weak opener for Northwestern. Here’s hoping for Larry Smith to QB a hell of a game and a win for Vandy’s new coach, Robbie Caldwell. Personally, I hope Vanderbilt does a great job and Caldwell is a successful coach, but even if the Commodores flop, like they always do, Nashville is still a great city and you’ll still catch me randomly in Tootsie’s or The Stage tossing a few back and enjoying the live music.
Prediction: Vandy 17 – Northwestern 14

Notre Dame shows up – It’s about time Notre Dame plays like a college football team again. I have grown tired of too many pretty boys with too much talent being all too wasted. That’s a lot of toos. Still, Dayne Crist is too talented to lose too often and the Notre Dame running game and defense should be much improved. Look for Notre Dame over Robert Marve and Purdue in a close game. It's going to be a good one regardless!
Prediction: Notre Dame 21 – Purdue 17

Hey Hokies, Shut Up! – Sorry, but I’m not apologizing to any Va Tech fans at all. Ryan Williams is good, Tyrod Taylor flashes both sides of Michael Vick, Bud Foster is an amazing D-coordinator, and the special teams for the Hokies will be stellar, as always. Boise State will win, period. Boise State still has something to prove and they are too talented to lose to a decent ACC team. The Broncos and their blue turf should join the ACC and give the ACC the consistent BCS threat every year that they have lacked since Miami starting sucking, Bobby Bowden went on a decline, and Ga Tech, nevermind, Ga Tech always sucks.
Prediction: Boise 28 – Va Tech 17

Because there is no fucking logical reason why he failed to mention Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd in his top 5 receivers for his annual "Herbie" Awards...
1. A.J. Green, Georgia
2. Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma
3. Jon Baldwin, Pitt
4. DeAndre Brown, Southern Miss
5. James Rodgers, Oregon State
I have no argument with A.J. Green being #1 because he is the best in the nation but Michael Floyd deserves to be up in the #2 or #3 slot. Floyd is a fucking monster who will eat your children Herbie. I really hope the coaches and players show Floyd this list to fire him up even more. The only reason I can possibly come up with the utter disrespect by pretty boy Herbie is that Floyd has a tendency to get hurt. He missed 5 and a half games last year and still nearly put up 795 yards receiving with 9 TDs in only 6 full games. Nobody can stop Floyd except himself.
Come on Herbie. Put down the paint chips and fucking wake up. Floyd next to A.J. Green are the two most dominant receivers in the college game. Show some respect Buckeye.

Valiant effort by the Nerd. My ass would have been passed out and pissing on myself after the fourth spin tops. It's a good thing Georgia Tech Head Coach Paul Johnson wasn't on hand for this display. He might have pulled a Suh and ripped the kid's head off for being a pussy. God I can't wait for college football to start!

Detroit Lions rookie defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is apparently not a Jake Delhomme fan. Who can blame him? The rook literally tries to rip off his fucking head. I think the "House Of Spears" is sending a very loud and clear message to the rest of the NFL that you better watch out for him and that the Lions are no longer the league's patsy. Even though they still are. I still got my money on Suh and Golden Tate being the two best players in this rookie class. Those guys are once every ten years type players who have that something extra that makes them special.

Talk about an all-time epic fuck up on the football field. Jesus kid...what the hell were you thinking? This video has already gone viral with over 750,000 views and the first thing I thought when I saw this was "Holy shit Reggie Ball is back in high school!" It's got to be him right? Or the kid must be related to Ball. Only a Ball would pull something so idiotic.

Here is a pump up video for my Georgia friends to get them through this slow Monday....
And of course I can't have one without a little Irish magic in it...
5 more days. We can't get through this. The tailgate is just around the corner. I can smell it.
